Joe Neguse Pulls Off an 80-Year First

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Rep. Joe Neguse (D-Boulderish)

As Ernest Luning reports for the publication formerly known as the Colorado Statesman:

U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse won election to lead the House Democrats’ messaging arm, putting the Lafayette Democrat in the No. 5 elected spot on his party’s leadership team in the chamber.

Neguse was elected without opposition as chairman of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, a newly created position that will make the 38-year-old the most senior member of the chamber’s leadership from the Colorado delegation in more than eight decades. [Pols emphasis]

Luning talked more with Neguse about his new title:

Neguse told Colorado Politics that he intends to pursue an aggressive legislative agenda in the upcoming Congress.

“It’s one of the many reasons why I decided to run again to serve in House leadership and to serve in this particular capacity — to be in the room as we make decisions that ultimately will impact every American, including the nearly 6 million Coloradans that live in our great state and the many others in our region,” Neguse said.

“Fighting for the American West and fighting for our state is always and will always be my North Star, and that’s something that I take very seriously, I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to continue to bring that kind of approach through this new role.”

Neguse is the highest-ranking Member of Congress from Colorado since Edward Taylor, who served as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and Democratic Caucus Chair.

    1. I have wondered how much longer Diana will choose to keep her seat. When this term she was just re-elected to ends, it will have been 28 years. That's a long time in the same job, regardless what it is.

  1. “The Goose” is one of the best political speakers I have ever heard. Very few can get a crowd fired up to a good purpose the way he can.

    A great choice for Policy and Communications, sonce everyone whines about how lousy Democrats are at messaging.

  2. Rep. Neguse is a star because he's hard working, super intelligent, and cares about the people he represents. I am a star because I'm a large gassy object.

  3. Years ago, Neguse showed up at our county Democratic party assembly during his run for CU Regent. I got to speak with him at length. Of the tens of thousands of people I've interacted with over the decades, he was easily one of the top 5 most impressive. As Andrew Romanoff said way back when Joe was one of his staffers, "One of these days we're all gonna be working for Joe Neguse." Kinda broke my heart when the redistricting committee penciled Broomfield out of Neguse's district.
